I was thinking Since facebook is soon to go IPO and is expected to be worth tens of billions of dollars shouldn't OC forums try to be more like facebook and cash in as well?

What kinds of social games should we put on the new site? And how about putting in timeline?

Keep drinking till this all makes sense to you then post your suggestions. Thanks.

Hmmm... I think OCF is a few hundred million users away from being able to "cash in" like FB is about to do.

I think that someone here should make an overclockers game. Make it where you select your hardware and cooling method, then see how far you can push it before it explodes in your face. I think that would be amusing. But as far as getting the "exposure" that Facebook has, it will never happen. There probably aren't even 200M custom PC builders/users in the world much less overclockers. About the only way that you could come even close is to change the site completely to a general computer forum, and even then those are a dime a dozen. That would just be horrible. Can you imagine answering questions about why old granny's keyboard quit working, only to find out she put it through the dishwasher. Or my gateway this, my dell that. I think that what we have here is a great small community of computer enthusiast's, and personally I would like to keep it that way.

I tried to drink until that made sense, but I passed out and woke up on my roof (somehow). My wife keeps giving me dirty looks and won't speak to me. I kinda wonder what happened...

All facebook-related domains are blocked at the router here. Let's keep OCF, OCF.

Drink more beer and Facebook will look like a good idea after all. You may even find yourself playing Farmville
